Bring out the pitchforks. Here I am, with my unpopular opinion of everyone’s favorite: Every Last Fear.
The fact that they had to explain who Eddie Haskell was really my aged me.
I felt icky reading some of Every Last Fear, I won’t lie. The part in Mexico did not sit well with me. I said out loud, “oh, let’s not do that. Let’s notttttt call them that”, (it almost felt like derogatory? How it was used) but ya know, the only person who could hear me was my dog. 🤷🏻♀️ So now, you get to hear me.
I did like the dual timelines and how the book flowed between characters. Each chapter was short and were quick reads. I also enjoyed the Netflix documentary aspect. I completely understood Matt’s perspective and would have done the same. I felt like a loose end or two was not wrapped up and I was more invested in that. Particularly, I wanted to know about Hank and Wendy/Sampson. The ending was predictable to a fault, so it was no surprise to me.
The supporting characters truly made the book. Bob and Aunt Cindy were the best supporting characters.
Overall, it was an okay read. It was a quick read as I finished the majority of it in a day I know I’m in the minority, but I just felt really underwhelmed. There were a lot of loose ends and the ending was very what I expected it to be with a dash of Bravo drama. I know I’m the minority, I know I know.
Thank you Minotaur and NetGalley for the gifted copy. Every Last Fear is out March 2nd.
